All ready for ANC’s historic Polokwane conference

2007-12-15 00:00

It’s all systems go this weekend for the long-awaited African National Congress (ANC’s)52nd national conference in Polokwane. The run up to the conference has been a rocky road marked by a bitter presidential succession battle between front-runners, current ANC president, Thabo Mbeki and his deputy Jacob Zuma.

Right now though, all minds are focussed on the logistics of the event, that has been dubbed the largest ANC elective conference in the history of the organisation. There will be 4 075 voting delegates in attendance. Also in attendance will be 450 non-voting delegates, 135 observers from allied organisations and 360 local and international guests. In addition there will be 200 support staff, 1000 service providers and about 700 national and international journalists covering the event. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
